    Yeah congrats to you I'm surprised my only A*AA prediction didn't let me down
    I know what you mean, with the same predictions as you I thought I had a slim chance, even though I personally think I should of been predicted A*A*A :P

    I assumed they would still let me in if I insured them and got AAA. Not so sure after what you said :/ Hopefully they only said that to persuade you to firm it.
    I hope so too
    What are your stats btw?

    Ahh I'm at St Joes, so I'm guessing you don't do economics at A level since you're not in my economics class? 😂😂😂

    Hey!
    Congratulations on all your offers! Choosing a university can be really difficult so try not to stress about it - it's good that you want to make sure you make the right decision. Have you been to an open day yet? When I was trying to decide open days were really helpful for me, before I attended any I was pretty set on going to one place, but it turned out I really didn't like it at all, where as when I got to Coventry it felt like home. Open days give you loads of opportunities to chat to current staff and students on your course and find out how they feel about it all too. I didn't study economics at Coventry but I do have a friend who did, and they loved it just as much as me even if we were in different departments, she's now working for the ONS so she's done well for herself. I know the economics course here are a pretty lively and dedicated bunch, they even have their own society.

    Like I say take you time thinking it through, visit open days if you can. And look at the course content! The same course at a different university can be completely different, and its about whats going to work best for you at the end of the day. If you have any questions we can help with, don't hesitate to drop us a line on here though or email our admissions team - we're here to help!

    Best of luck with the big decision. Let us know how you get on

    Ah thats sick man, I had 10A*s and 2As at GCSE but ABBB at AS. I still managed to be predicted A*A*A* + A* in welsh bac tho loooooool. I'm waiting on UCL and Warwick, got offers from Bath and Nottingham, and was rejected by Oxford cos of my AS grades so I might take a gap year. You've applied to good unis, have you got any other offers yet?

    I would rather live inside a Nigerian hippopotamus' rectum, feeding off it's faeces for life, than live in Coventry. It would less violent, more aesthetically pleasing, and I would be surrounding by more intelligent organisms.
